Everyone knows that planning is the first step in web site development, but many people overlook the need for ongoing management. Without proper maintenance, a complex site can become riddled with broken external links, missing files, and broken CGI scripts.
Thankfully, Dreamweaver offers all the webmaster tools necessary for deployment and long- term maintenance, such as FTP, link checking, and file checking. Even better, Dreamweaver's site management tools simplify development and help reduce the likelihood of problems down the road. Dreamweaver helps you to manage and synchronize both the local site (the development version on your personal computer) and the remote site (the version on a web server that gets published on the Internet).
